Learning outcomes of the course unit:
Student will gain the essential knowledge concerning the mathematical modeling
describing the particular building physics phenomena, which arise while
building designing. The mathematical models of thermal engineering, mechanics
and fluid dynamics are governed by partial differential equations accomplished
by corresponding boundary conditions. That is why the adequate attention is
devoted to the appropriate mathematical background (differential equations and
boundary conditions types, vector analysis, etc.). The other substantial aim
of this subject is the computing, that is preceded by the acquainting with a 
finite element software tool and gaining the required skills within.

Course contents:
- Thermal properties of the buildings and materials, heat equation and its
modifications, deriving of the heat equation from the energy balance and
empirical law, piecewise linear tasks
- Boundary conditions accomplishing mathematical model of the thermal
engineering, boundary conditions types; one-dimensional and multi-dimensional
- Vector analysis
- Elementary elasticity equations, derivation for 1D, integral relations for
the stress and strain
- The baseline of the fluid dynamics, inner and outer fluid flow
- Simple nonlinear tasks, material properties dependant on the temperature,
enthalpy, phase change in the heat equation
The exercises are devoted to the computer implementation, the software skills
acquiring being emphasized.
